Holiday Decorating Tips
We encourage residents and families to decorate their loved one's rooms for the holidays.
Please adhere to DOH safety guidelines, which allow one power strip per room with four items plugged in.
Only one extension cord for one plug is permitted in each room.
No adaptive outlets allowing for more items to be plugged in are permitted.
Everything needs to be 18'' from the ceiling in order to not block the sprinkler system.
No candles are allowed unless they are battery operated candles or unless wicks are cut.
If you have questions on decorating, please contact your Case Manager, Cindy, Garden House at ext.2448
We will be decorating each unit for the holidays and welcome any wreaths or other holiday door decorations you may want to hang up or send in to brighten up each area to help us celebrate the season.
Stay Safe - Mask Reminder
We strongly recommend that residents wear masks when they are in groups or within six feet of others, even if they are vaccinated.
We will be reminding residents to wear their masks throughout the day.
Our top priority is keeping our residents healthy and safe.
